WIN secures peace of mind with Pixelmetrix DVB-T monitoring
Australia’s largest regional television broadcaster, WIN Television has chosen the Pixelmetrix DVStation-Mini2 DVB-T fully featured monitoring probe to monitor DVB-T services at WIN transmission sites across Australia. Supplied and installed by local distributor, Techtel, the DVStation-Mini2 DVB-T systems provide unparalleled visibility into the quality of service reaching WIN’s network-wide audience.
The DVStation-Mini2 DVB-T offers high quality DVB-T RF measurements and in-depth TS analysis, providing WIN with 24/7 operational monitoring and assurance of the quality and continuity of their DVB-T services. The intuitive system will also generate video thumbnails for H.264 video streams in both SD and HD.
“We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to work with WIN on this project. Joining our DVB-T customers worldwide, they too have immediately benefited from greater visibility of service-affecting issues that our DVStation provides. The unattended remote control capability is particularly useful across their wide and hostile geographic coverage area,” said Danny Wilson, President and CEO of Pixelmetrix.
With a transmission span covering more geographical area than any other broadcaster in the world, WIN’s digital network required a solution that was able to effectively monitor and log data collected from a widespread selection of monitoring points within their DTT network topology. “Pixelmetrix were prepared to listen to our specific requirements, even offering to adapt their product to provide the results we needed”, said Transmission Broadcast Director at WIN Corporation, Greg Lederhose. “Their flexibility, coupled with a product that is easy-to-use and which offered us all the monitoring features we needed was ultimately what lead us to the decision. Pixelmetrix and Techtel installed the systems promptly and have done an excellent job”, he added.
